The collection of ceramist and interior designer Ann Van Beersel for Artisann is a collection in which the turntable is an important instrument. My collection is full of imperfection and every cup is handcrafted and finished with care. The Beach cup is rotated with the turntable in 3 sizes. For the small I use 200gr clay, the medium 250gr clay and the Large of tea cup or mug 300gr clay. The shape and the glaze are basically the same but because everything is made by hand and I want to show this clearly, no cup will be the same. This is my concept and creativity, the opposite of the serial work.
Imperfection is the common thread in my ARTISANN collection. The "Beach" collection can be nicely combined with the "Dunes" and "Zwin" and "Honey" collection.
The "Beach" collection is made of burgundy brown clay and is finished with a beautiful floating blue glaze. On the outside of each cup, I consciously leave a rough clay zone in contrast with the glazed inside and top. The color of the floating blue glaze reacts very nicely with the red-brown clay, which is not possible with another clay. I make a conscious choice of the clay in combination with the modified glaze. My work is labeled with the formed "a" from artisann.

The bucket is possible because the clay is stoneware clay and can withstand this high temperature. The glaze recipe is also specially designed for a 1250 ° container.
